A liquid ring vacuum pump is easy to operate and is used in a number of applications across various industries. A liquid ring pump works with a sealant screw air compressor needed in its operation. This liquid could be water, essential oil or any additional solvent which can be rotated by an impeller within the casing of the pump.
The typical oil found in a large rotary piston vacuum pump is a mineral oil that is through a distillation process to lessen its vapor pressure. These vacuum pumps possess an ultimate vacuum, occasionally known as “blank off” vacuum, of 0.010 Torr (10 microns, 1 x 10-2 Torr or 0.0133 mbar).
